Need Understanding about Costing of SQL Database

Hi Team,

Hope you are doing well!!

We have the requirement that we want to move our database to Azure server. I wanted to know about the process of billing for the SQL dB's hosted on the Azure server.

Let's say we have 2-3 different databases that we want to move to the azure, So I would like to know how much it will cost us per month for this one.

And what are the factor's that can impact the cost during the period.

Thanks & Regards

Do you want to host those databases on an Azure SQL VM (IaaS) or you want to migrate them to logical database servers on Azure SQL (PaaS)?

What for a SQL solution on Azure are you looking for; Azure SQL, Managed SQL Server or VM with SQL Server?
Anyway, use the Azure Price Calculator: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/

@GIRISHSHARMA-5933 In addition to the below responses.

Use the Azure pricing calculator to estimate costs for different Azure SQL Database configurations. For more information, see Azure SQL Database pricing.


SQL Database initial cost considerations
When working with Azure SQL Database, there are several cost-saving features to consider:

vCore or DTU purchasing models
Azure SQL Database supports two purchasing models: vCore and DTU. The way you get charged varies between the purchasing models so it's important to understand the model that works best for your workload when planning and considering costs. For information about vCore and DTU purchasing models, see Choose between the vCore and DTU purchasing models.

Provisioned or serverless
In the vCore purchasing model, Azure SQL Database also supports two types of compute tiers: provisioned throughput and serverless. The way you get charged for each compute tier varies so it's important to understand what works best for your workload when planning and considering costs. For details, see vCore model overview - compute tiers.

Regards,
Oury
